GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has added new NVMe PCIe M.2 SSDs to its storage lineup following the overwhelmingly positive reception to its first SATA series. With different storage capacities to choose from, the new SSDs adhere to GIGABYTE Ultra Durable and product stability standards, delivering highly stable and effective SSD performance.
The initial batch of GIGABYTE M.2 SSDs are available in three capacities, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB sizes. The new SSDs adopt 2280 mainstream specifications and operate by way of the PCIe Gen3 x2 M.2 transmission interface, removing the need for power and transmission cables that are used with traditional SATA SSDs. Installation of these M.2 devices are more straightforward and the lack of cables makes way for improved airflow and heat dissipation inside the casing, strengthening the overall performance of these devices. NVMe architecture allows for superior read/write speeds compared to SATA SSDs and with M.2 Thermal Guards on GIGABYTE motherboards, GIGABYTE M.2 devices offer much improved performance at an incredible value for those who want to upgrade from SATA SSDs to NVMe M.2 SSDs without breaking the bank.Add a comment
